Immigrants and the Fortune 500: how Partnership for a New American Economy misleads (Bloomberg, Murdoch, Villaraigosa, Ballmer) - 09/04/11

... somehow second-rate; the phrase "New Americans" (see this, this, this, this, this) implies somehow that "Old Americans" just aren't good enough. The spirit of such reports and those who promote them isn't Greatest Generation, it's more The Native Born Are Deadweight. 3. Some of those immigrants came to the U.S. a long time ago. DuPont is one of the "immigrant-founded" companies on their list,...

... study the basics of U.S history. New Americans’ attachment to the nation and our institutions is essential for the preservation of the social cohesion of our political community. The last sentence is correct, although that could be argued.

New Jersey state "Commission on New Americans" will enable illegal immigration - 01/12/10

... order creating a "Commission on New Americans", a sort of far-left welcome wagon for both legal and illegal immigrants. News report here, order at [1].

The current order doesn't say anything about immigration status and doesn...

Corzine, who convened the Blue Ribbon Advisory Panel on Immigrant Policy last August, said Monday he agrees that illegal immigrants, especially those brought to the U.S. as children and attending local schools, should be able to pay in-state tuition at the state's public colleges...

"Comprensive immigration reform" returns: S.9, the "Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009" - 01/07/09

Comprehensive immigration reform - aka an amnesty for illegal aliens - is back. Yesterday, Harry Reid introduced S.9, the "Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009" ("SESBA"). What's there now is just a placeholder (link), however the remarks made by Patrick Leahy at introduction show exactly what it is. Those remarks and the list of co-sponsors are below. Note that this is a repeat of how...

Gil Cedillo's SB 1 would create "Office of Immigrant Affairs" - 03/19/07

California state Senator Gil Cedillo - a Democrat whose actions are usually indistinguishable from those that a paid Mexican agent would engage in - is back with a new scheme: creating an "Office of Immigrant Affairs" with bill SB 1. He pretends that that Office would help new immigrants get settled in the state, help them apply for citizenship, and so forth.

What the "Northern Alliance" won't ask Michael Barone - 08/11/06

... repurposed edition of his book The New Americans ("How the melting pot can work again"). Apparently it's on a real radio station (not shortwave!) that can be streamed over the web. I am going on record as stating that this will be a puffball interview that strongly favors the Bush/Fox/McCain/Kennedy amnesty, but I'm not going to waste my time bothering to find out whether I'm correct or not....
